Discover Nuggets of Truth Hidden in the Bible
Does your mind start to wander when you come to the genealogies, lists of numbers, and confusing prophecies in the Bible? Have you ever wondered Why did God include all these obscure laws? Trusted Bible scholar Boyd Seevers uncovers the hidden treasures in some of the lesser-known sections of the Bible. For example, he reveals what heads and horns and beasts symbolize in the apocalyptic prophecies and why there's a law in Deuteronomy that roofs must have walls around them. Once you understand why God included the seemingly uninteresting or difficult passages and how to unlock them on your own, your Bible study will come alive and you'll connect to God in new ways.
Includes discussion questions to help your small group get the most out of their Bible reading.
